Eternal Darkness Will "Definitely" Be Discussed For The Wii U, Say Precursor Games
Posted by Orla Madden
Let's not get our hopes up
We reported last week that Shadow of the Eternals - the "spiritual successor" to GameCube spook-'em-up title Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem - would make its way to the Wii U next year should its crowdfunding campaign prove to be a success.
We know developer Precursor Games and Nintendo are in constant contact regarding the game, but what about its predecesor?
When asked by a fan on the Shadow of the Eternals Facebook page about the possibility of a Virtual Console release for the GameCube classic during discussions with Nintendo, the reply was quite positive.
Q: Is there any chance that while in talks with Nintendo you can bring up a possible re-release of the GameCube's Eternal Darkness as a Virtual Console release? It would allow hype to build on the game and allow people who had not played before to get into the series!
A: We will definitely discuss that. Thanks for the suggestion!
It's only a suggestion at the moment, and Nintendo hasn't yet confirmed that GameCube titles will be hitting the Wii U Virtual Console. We'd love to read what you think of the idea in the comments below, though it's worth noting that the crowdfunding project is struggling to date; at the time of writing it's raised less than $150,000 of a $1.5 million target, with just 25 days remaining.
